Well here is the official release on my book collaboration with Heather J Taylor. I am very excited to work with Heather. She is very talented and I am in awe of her writing and what she has come up with to date.
It’s official! The “Heathers” have united! No, not for a remake of the killer, black comedy film, “Heathers” (although, Wynona Ryder has confirmed the sequel), but instead, acclaimed artist, Heather Gleason and writer/producer, Heather J. Taylor have decided to collaborate on a spooky children’s book inspired by Gleason’s whimsical artwork. The books do lean towards the dark side, but the two creators promise that the series is intended for a tween audience and won’t be as gruesome compared to the cult classic movie.
So, how did they meet? They instantly shared LOL’s when they met via mutual “top friends” on MySpace three years ago. Since both Heathers are huge fans of horror and share in the excitement of the “Heathers” film, they began an online friendship.
“One day I was surfing MySpace horror fans and saw Heather Taylor’s profile, which was designed as an homage to classic horror films and Madonna,” laughed Heather Gleason, artist and creator of MyEclecticMind. “After reading it, I realized we had so much in common, including our enthusiasm for horror, Madonna and spine-chilling literary works.” Through the years the Heathers have stayed in touch by the usual social online networks, but in May of 2009, Gleason created a Hollywood Witch hat for Taylor and mailed it to her home. Upon receiving the one-of-a-kind collector’s item, Taylor was immediately inspired to write.
“Without delay, I picked up the phone and called her!” exclaimed Heather J. Taylor, writer and producer for Signatures Required, LLC. “I just knew that her artistic talents and my passion for storytelling was a good match for an illustrious book.”
Since May, the Heathers have been busy collaborating on their first book, currently titled, “The First Date,” which is based on several of Gleason’s unique and eerie characters. And although, the two creators share in their passion for Halloween, the book won’t be completely centered on the pumpkin-filled holiday. The series of books will divulge spellbinding tales of rare characters and capricious deeds, but that’s all they are saying for now.
If you don’t already know, being a “Heather” means being a part of the most powerful clique in sinister history. Expect the unexpected, when it comes to this duo.

Hello Boyls and Ghouls, I am back from New York City. WOW what a weekend. It was an experience I am so glad I did not miss. So many genuinely nice people. I met up with some great collectors and some of the friendliest vendors.
I bought Guillermo Del toro’s novel the Strain and it is signed YAY. I listened in while he was speaking Friday night. I was like if some huge Elvis fan saw Elvis singing in concert. NAH I wasn’t that bad. My hands were shaking though and I was not even near him all the pictures I took came out blurry. YES I AM A DORK!!! A HUGE FAN!!I am sure he saw me and my giant wig..yes people it was a wig not my real hair LOL!
Michael Dougherty stopped by my table and quiet me once again clammed up and didn’t really say a peep. Once again always say the wrong things. UGHHH! I love his artwork and hope his movie is a success I am not sure if it will be out in the movies? From what i have seen in the trailers it looks AWESOME I can’t imagine it not being in theatres! I could only peek in due to the larger crowds in the vendor area 🙁 So i missed out on him talking. He did give me one of his Trick R Treat photos..but he didn’t sign it. He is very cute may I add. Very friendly I don’t know why I clammed up?
I will be adding photos of the convention to the art show folder in my gallery later in the week. If you took pics of me at the show I would love for you to send them to me :)it was alot of fun meeting everyone.
I am taking a break from painting for as long as I can hold out which will be until tomorrow I am sure. Being Obsessive compulsive can be pretty scary at times. Especially when i can’t paint.
